Uganda: Strengthening Accountability Institutions

Identifying the need to strengthen the capacity of justice sector institutions in the investigation, prosecution and adjudication of fraud and corruption-related matters in Uganda and to improve the coordination of state accountability institutions with anti-corruptions civil society organizations, ILI-ACLE collaborated with the Anti-Corruption Division of the High Court and the Anti-Corruption Coalition of Uganda. Together, they launched a pilot programme to strengthen accountability systems in Lira and Soroti districts with funding from the Democratic Governance Facility. This one-year pilot initiative involved joint training and institutional action planning for officials from state accountability institutions and anti-corruption and also provided a framework for a multi-year initiative for the comprehensive up-skilling of the sector.
